INTERVIEW: Actor, Host, and Filmmaker Yuval David

Yuval David is an acclaimed actor, host, and filmmaker. He has appeared in multiple TV series, including 100 episodes of ABC’s hidden-camera primetime show, ‘What Would You Do?’ CBS’ ‘Madam Secretary’ ‘The Michael J. Fox Show,’ and the HBO miniseries ‘The Plot Against America.’ He’s also appeared in, as well as produced, various award-winning films, and is the creator of various web series, all aimed at entertaining, uplifting, and inspiring others.

Yuval’s inherent gift for bringing extraordinary characters and complex narratives to life doesn’t reside exclusively as an actor or host in front of the camera.  As an acclaimed filmmaker, Yuval produces, directs, and writes films, episodic-series, and documentaries. He lives by his filmmaking mantra to consistently create compelling content.

As the award-winning filmmaker behind films like “The BetaLoop” and “House of Fury,” his work has earned him a plethora of awards and recognition, including Audience Awards, and awards for ‘Best Director,’ ‘Best Special FX,’ and ‘Best Sound Design.’ His mountain of original content, including web series, short films, and documentaries continues to equally inspire, empower and move others. This is seen across his original content, whether it’s “One Actor Short,” which invites those who have never acted to be the stars of a short film; his ‘Better World’ series, which queries people on the street, asking them to share what they are doing to help improve the world around them; or ‘Pranks of Kindness,’ flipping the paradigm of performing pranks at someone else’s expense on its head by surprising people with feel-good pranks.

If you live in New York, or have visited the city, chances are you have seen him traversing Manhattan’s streets, microphone in hand, with film crew in tow, conducting ‘Man on the Street’ interviews with a diverse cross-section of humanity, and in some cases, playing pranks on them, in public areas of the city.

All of Yuval’s content is aimed at making people feel good, both those on and off camera, and promoting social good through art, something he speaks about on panels and through keynote speeches around the world. Yuval’s approach is focused on empowering others. Throughout his span of creative and advocacy work, which focuses on identity, gender, creativity, social and environmental consciousness (including LGBTQ+, Jewish and Israeli, humanitarian, and arts and cultural organizations and causes), Yuval seeks to invite others in through inclusivity, allowing them to join on the journey, and impart a message of becoming more improved versions of themselves.

Yuval also creates content about environmental and societal issues, creatively exploring the documentary format and how to have social impact through an artistic film format.
